Things have grown dark in the land of Krellion. The source of all good things, five powerful wizards known as “The Ring of Five,” have disappeared. Three evil beings from the shadow realm — three Dark Ones – have kidnapped and hidden the Ring of Five. And now, as the summer equinox approaches, the Dark Ones threaten to break the barrier separating Krellion from the shadow realm and cast Krellion into darkness forever. Only one warrior, Lykos, can rescue the Ring of Five, destroy the Dark Ones and restore Krellion to the beautiful place it once was.
